Custom Home Design in Maine

Custom home design services for starter to luxury homes

Built By Adams features a custom drafting design department specifically for capturing the fine points of your custom home design into build"able"-construction plans. Regardless of the style of house that you select, our professional team translates your plan, along with any minor or major revisions, into the actual working documents that you will use to apply for your building permit.

We work hard to prepare your plans so that they can be used as a common language between your site professional, Mason, Framer, Roofer, and other sub-contractors in the quoting and construction phases of your project.

Once we have your design concept, we incorporate code compliance for your town or city, as well as compliance with the specifications that you have provided in home contract. When we prepare your final plan we further design into your home any additional lumber specifications, steel beams, structural posts, roof girders, and the like that are needed to exceed the support requirements for the snow and wind loads that prevail in your area.

As custom home builders we have the resources to design your structure with many custom touches such as walk-out bay windows, interior overlooks, custom window heights and designs, arched openings, cantilevered floor decks and roof assemblies, sloped-ceiling dormers, curved garage door openings, and tray or cathedral ceilings. With a world of features available to you, put your building dollar to use in just the places that you want those extra touches to best fit your home around how you live and your special surroundings.

Here are just some of the many custom features that are available to you as part of our custom plan process: Extended Eave Overhangs, Built-Bay projections, Enlarged closets, Garage space in basements, Bonus Rooms, Attic truss storage, Enlarged mud room entries, Enlarged laundry work areas, Custom deck designs and Enclosed outdoor living screen areas. Utilizing Built By Adams as your home designer, its our job to keep an eye on your target budget, something traditional design companies are not able to do.

Design flexibility utilizing the best materials that are available on the market today is what we bring to your home or commercial project. Once the home has been designed we send it off to be modeled to meet the ENERGY STAR program guidelines for new construction. This is a very important part of the process and will determine the strengths and weakness (if any) of the design and allows us to build better homes. We strongly recommend anyone who is going to build a new home to at least have your home design independently modeled and tested by a local ENERGY STAR rater.
